Universal has tapped “Inherent Vice” actress Katherine Waterston to play Steve Jobs’ first wife Chrisann Brennan in Universal’s “Jobs,” opposite Michael Fassbender.

Seth Rogen is on board to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Danny Boyle will direct from Aaron Sorkin’s script, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography.

Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing.

Universal picked up “Jobs” out of turnaround last month after Sony let it go.

Waterston portrayed a key role as Shasta Fay Hepworth in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” She is repped by UTA and Silver Lining Entertainment.

The news was first reported by Deadline.com.

    Danny Boyle will turn this into an awkward British type of film. Get rid of him and hire a true American that understands valuable entrepreneurism.

    Please correct this immeditately. Jobs was never married to Chrisann!

    Another Steve Jobs Biopic. Can you say I-Bored. It’s the same concept behind The Social Network and David Fincher; a safe bet to perform decently in theaters. I just hope they shine a whole light on his struggles and successes, his flaws as well as his gifts. Paint a full picture please
